REPORT OF OSSIPEE POLICE DEPT. 1976 

To the Selectmen and Citizens of 
the Town of Ossipee, N.H. 

The past year has been a busy one for the Police Dept. 
The work load increased by 40 percent over 1975, and the 
traffic count was up 20 percent over 1975. 

Although there was a significant increase in activity 
the department was successful in clearing a large number 
of cases. There were fewer burglaries and more arrests 
for the burglaries that did occur. A burglary in Granite 
resulted in three arrests with one serving jail time and two 
juveniles, another at The Ski Works in West Ossipee where 
approximately $5,000 in goods were recovered, one was a 
juvenile and two others were sent to jail. There were also 
four cases of receiving stolen property where restitution 
was ordered and the items recovered and returned to the 
owners. 

The Cadet Program was a success again this year with 
little cost to the town. 

There is a plan to apply for a Federal Grant to place an 
extra officer on duty during the summer months, this 
would cost the town very little. 

Again this year we can report no fatal accidents in the 
town. 

I would like to thank my officers, the town officials, 
other department heads, and the citizens of Ossipee for 
their cooperation and assistance this past year. 



Respectfully, 

JOHN E. FOGARTY 

Chief of Police

A vital addition to the Ossipee Recreation Department 
has been the organization of the Ossipee Recreation and 
Parks Advisory Committee which has been meeting on the 
third Friday of each month since May of last year. The 
purpose of the committee is to develop committee 
guidelines specific to our community and its needs, advise 
the Recreation Department on matters of community 
recreation, bring suggestions of improvement from the 
citizens of the community, and to enhance public relations 
by making townspeople aware of programs available 
throughout the year. 



Members serving on the committee are the following: 
Ellen Cox, Helen Drew, Jan Donovan, Donald Eldridge, 
and Bruce Rines. 



74 



With the increasing output of yearly programs, the 
Ossipee Recreation Department has relied on a greater 
number of volunteers, sponsors, and coaches, and the 
continued support of parents and interested citizens. We, 
therefore, extend our appreciation to these people who 
realize the importance of recreation to the community. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JAMES THOMPSON 
Director of Recreation

BICENTENNIAL COMMITTEE REPORT 

To the Townspeople of Ossipee: 

The celebration of our nation's 200th birthday has 
ended, and I, as chairman of Ossipee's Bicentennial 
Committee feel that we added greatly to that celebration. 

Early in 1976, plans were being made for the 
publication of a commemorative booklet. Many meetings 
resulted in the idea that a pictorial history of Ossipee, 
rather than a written one, (time being of importance) 
would be more interesting and easier to put together. With 
the help of several committee members and many interest 
townspeople, without whose generosity in lending their 
prized old photographs, the booklet - "Early Ossipee - A 
Pictorial View", became a realty. 2,000 books were printed 
with only a very small percentage sold to date. It was felt 
by the committee, however, that it would take a few years 
to sell the entire amount. As with many books of this type, 
all too soon copies become few and result as collectors 
items. 

Another great tribute to Ossipee's heritage is the 
Bicentennial quilt. This project was sponsored by the 
Extension Group, and is a result of many talented ladies in 
the community. Each one of the 35 squares depicts a part 
of Ossipee. 

The parade, this year headed by Dick Ziegler was once 
again a tremendous success, and it is planned for this to 
become an annual event. 

The old town pound on Walker Hill Road was opened to 
the public on June 5. The Ossipee Girl Scouts took this 
project on and spent many hours clearing brush and 
moving rocks to restore the pound to its original condition. 

Ossipee became an official bicentennial community on 
June 5. This was achieved by meeting goals set by the 



76 



American Revolution Bicentennial Committee. Accepting 
the Bicentennial flag and certificate of recognition was 
Chairman of Selectmen, Roger Busch. Also at this public 
ceremony held at the Town Hall was the dedication of the 
"Early Cemetery Records" book to its organizer, Mrs. 
Eva B. Loud. A dinner for the honored guest was held 
following the ceremony at the Shepherd's Inn. 

An insignia contest, open to all elementary school 
children resulted in a design created by Jennifer Ziegler. 
It was decided to use the design on a ceramic tile. After a 
long wait, the tiles finally arrived from the factory (much 
later than promised). The committee felt the tiles were of 
poor quality, so steps are being taken to see if some sort of 
credit can be obtained for these tiles. 

Town appropriations will be repaid in full as the 
**Early Ossipee' booklets are sold. Any profit thereafter 
will be placed in a bank account and used towards projects 
during Ossipee's own bicentennial in 1986. 

My sincere thanks to everyone who helped make the 
bicentennial celebration a success. The support of 
everyone was appreciated. 

BRAYTON ELDRIDGE 
Chairman 

Please note: Copies of the booklet - **Early Ossipee - A 
Pictorial View" are now available at the Town Hall.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 
OSSIPEE CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

The Ossipee Conservation Commission, spawned at 
the 1976 Town Meeting, has had an eventful first year. 
Since the organizational meeting on April 14, 1976, we have 
had a series of well attended and well publicized public 
meetings. Our primary concern throughout the summer 
and fall was the pollution of Ossipee Lake. The appearance 
of an algae bloom in the lake this spring caused a major 
disturbance, and started our first year with a bang. 

Throughout the summer, public meetings were held at 
the Superior Court house with public officials as speakers. 
In attendance were members of the Water Supply and 
Pollution Control Commission, the Lakes Region Planning 
Commission, and the Environmental Protection Agency - 
all concerned with Ossipee Lake. Besides being in- 
formative, these meetings were intended to put pressure 
on state and federal governments, so we would receive the 
benefit of complete testing of Ossipee Lake. It was the 
Commission's intention to get Ossipee included in the 208 
testing program for water quality. Although the actual 
causes of the pollution are still questionable, we did get 
possibilities: over-population of the lake, faulty septic 
systems, annual flooding, weather conditions, topography, 
and natural causes. Many methods have been suggested 
for remedying the problems and identifying them with 
surety. For instance, we have been collecting photos and 
economic data of flood damage from lake residents to 
present to the Army Corps of Engineers, who surveyed 
Ossipee Lake at our request in August. 

What was really needed was further testing and in- 
vestigation of the lake. The Commission has been suc- 
cessful in achieving this. Due to the meetings and public 
pressure Ossipee Lake is now fully established as a lake, 
and as a town water body with the state and federal 
governments. This means that now state and federal 
agencies will appropriate monies to solve the problems of 



80 



Ossipee Lake. The Commission has been successful in 
pinpointing the problem of the algae bloom and related 
problems, although causes are being investigated. 

The lake is presently in a transitional state, going 
from pristine to a less then pristine, intermediate stage. It 
is the responsibility of all of us to hold the lake at its 
present level of aging ; preventing it from going to the next 
undesirable stage. The prevention and solutions are the 
tasks of the Commission's second year. 

Other areas investigated were the town septic system, 
the water quality of Dan Hole Pond, the 3,200 acre 
proposed state forest, various Dredge and Fill permits, the 
Deer Cove condominiums and their systems of waste 
removal, and the collection of town maps. We are now in 
the process of writing articles for Town Meeting according 
to our findings. It should also be noted that the Con- 
servation Commission was selected by the selectmen to be 
the "watchdogs" of the new proposed town septic system. 

We had an extremely informative and successful year 
guarding Ossipee's natural resources. We look forward to 
the continued and increased support of the Town.

OSSIPEE PLANNING BOARD 
Center Ossipee, New Hampshire 03814 



Gentlemen: 

The Ossipee Planning Board gave final approval to 
approximately one hundred lots submitted for subdivision. 
Ninety percent of these lost were owned by commercial 
developers. The lots submitted were, for the most part, on 
Class V town roads. 

A considerable amount of time was spent attempting 
to determine if the Board had jurisdiction over the former 
Deer Cove Lodge Resort, Inc. property. This property was 
purchased by a developer, who turned the cabin colony 
into condominiums. The result of numerous hours of in- 
vestigation with various state agencies and Town Counsel 
was that The Planning Board, under present law, has no 
jurisdiction in this type of development. 

The proposed zoning ordinance, to be presented at the 
1977 Town Meeting, was a major project of the Board. 
Several ordinances presently in use by other New Hamp- 
shire towns were studied, with the decision that the basic 
format used by the Town of Belmont was best suited to the 
needs of Ossipee. The ordinance was the restructured with 
the aim of providing a liberal ordinance which would af- 
ford protection for the property owner without creating 
hardship for his neighbor. 

The Planning Board appreciates the cooperation 
extended to it by the Town Officers, Town Counsel 
Frederic L. Cox and especially to The Lakes Region 
Planning Commission Staff. 

Sincerely, 

PETER D. BILLINGS 

Chairman

of visits continue to be to the elderly, but the number of 
births also increased this year. 

The Swine Flu clinic was held at the Town Hall in 
Center Ossipee for all citizens over 18 years of age. Co- 
operation between the N.H. Public Health Dept., Ossipee 
Nursing Service & Dr. Anne Collins made this disease 
preventive measure of value to the citizens. Special thanks 
is extended to Dr. Collins, the many nurses of Ossipee and 
the Concerned Citizen Group who donated much time. 

Blood pressure readings are taken at the nursing 
office and reports made to physicians. Medical equipment 
for loan for home care continues wth the hospital bed, 2 
wheelchairs and 3 walkers presently on loan. Emphasis on 
home care continues for the citizens of Ossipee.

BARBARA ANDERSON, R.N.

REPORT OF DISTRICT FIRE CHIEF 
AND TOWN FOREST FIRE WARDEN 



Since its beginning in 1893, the State Forestry 
Department has recognized the fact that forest fire 
prevention and suppression is a joint state and town or city 
responsibility. Local authorities recommend names of 
persons to the State Forester, who appoints one person as 
town or city fire warden and several other persons as town 
or city deptuy fire wardens to a three year term. 

The local forest fire warden controls the kindling of all 
outside fires, when the ground is not covered with snow, by 
issuing a written permit for kindling a fire. Permits are 
only issued at such times and in such places as the fire 
warden deems as safe. 

The State Forest Fire Service trains the local forest 
fire organization in modern forest fire prevention and 
suppression tactics. The State also provides backup 
personnel and equipment for suppression and prevention 
activities. 

The combination of State and local forces has resulted 
in one of the smallest acreage loss due to forest fires in the 
United States for the past 20 years.
